On May 18th about 18 MBA students from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) visited Dongguk University (DU). UTD is one of DU's sister universities around the world. They visited DU as a part of the UTD Korea/China Tour program from May 13th-22nd. UTD subsidizes their students for the field trip. The director of the program said that the field trip will be used as some school credit for the students who participated.
While in Korea, participants are scheduled to visit Korea's main enterprises and explore ancient Korean relics. On their first day in Korea the students visited DU after the head office of SK Telecom. After that, they travelled to Kyoung-Ju to see cultural relics such as Seokkuram and Pulkuksa and went to Ulsan to explore Hyundai heavy industries and motors as well as Pohang to see POSCO. At the end of their trip, they came back to Seoul to tour Samsung electronics, folk villages, Insadong, local markets, COEX mall, Hongdae and, lastly, watched a 'nanta' performance.
At DU the students had a campus tour, ate lunch at Sanglokwon, and attended a special lecture about the Korean economy presided by a professor of Management. The special lecture mainly informed the students about the history of the growth of the Korean economy in the last few decades. “I was impressed by DU in that it has its unique Buddhism style. Especially the temple locating inside the campus captures my mind” said Nezi Tovi, one of the participants in the program.
